Temporary Jobs Overview

Many businesses in the UK experience fluctuating demand throughout the year and employ staff on a temporary basis to allow them to operate as efficiently as possible. These jobs can be found in a wide range of industries, such as retail jobs, agriculture jobs and administration jobs. Almost all types of businesses sometimes require temporary staff and so whatever your qualifications and experiences there may be a company looking for somebody just like you.

Temporary Jobs Education Requirements

The qualifications and experience requirements vary widely depending on both the organisation and the role. Many jobs in retail or catering may require little in the way of formal qualifications while more specialised roles in other industries may need a degree or professional qualifications. In general, these roles require the same qualifications as their permanent equivalents.

Temporary Jobs Market

Part time temporary jobs offer flexibility to both employers and employees. In many areas, especially those with large student populations, there can be significant competition for these positions as they provide an excellent opportunity to earn more money around existing commitments such as childcare, education or other jobs. The availability of many temporary jobs fluctuates during the year. For example, during the summer there is increased demand for events and catering staff, during the harvest there is increased demand for agricultural roles and the period leading up to Christmas offers more opportunities in the retail sector.

Temporary Jobs Salary Information

Salaries for part time temporary jobs vary significantly based on the role and location of the position. Although some unskilled roles offer only the minimum wage of £6.50 an hour many positions that require greater qualifications or skills offer significantly more. Compensation is typically in line with permanent positions in the relevant field.
